This magnificent example of a classic double stout delivers a velvety-smooth palate of dry, burnt flavours - complemented by roast, cocoa and coffee notes. Black, creamy and delicious; it is a Shepherd Neame masterpiece.

Pours black colour with small brown head. Beautiful smell of coffee and chocolate. Surprisingly high carbonation for a stout. Mouthfeel is a bit light at first but it turns into creamy soon enough. Taste is mostly burnt, roasted coffee with a very bitter and dry finish. Overall, quality stout and well worth a try but Im a bit disappointed with it lacking some flavour other then burnt. Not for everyone.

danlo (2602) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2016
500ml bottle from Ken Warne grocery store, Darlington. Black colour, beige foam head leaving some lacing and aroma of ash, coffee, roast malt, dark chocolate. Taste is smokey, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, liquorice and lingering bitterness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry roasted dark chocolate bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

Malrider69 (141) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2016
Pours an opaque black colour with a disappointingly thin tan head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is of caramel, burnt toffee and roasted malt. The flavour is similar with a slight hint of coffee. Overall and excellent stout, possibly the best English stout I have tried.

KoNrRiI (1229) - rhus, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2016
0.5 bottle. Very dark brown color with an enormous, creamy, brownish head. Aroma of dark malts, bread, metal, and wet dog. Taste is malty, sweet, somewhat grainy and bready. A medium body, a creamy texture, and a flat carbonation. Finish is medium long and sourer than the rest. Overall nothing special, it has a distinctly English character but also a distinctly watery body.

ROSE1962 (255) - POLAND - JAN 8, 2016
Barwa czarna, piana brązowa, kożuszek zostaje do końca. W aromacie kawa, czekolada, nuty palone. W smaku wytrawne z wyraźną goryczką na finiszu, poza tym nuty palone, kawowe i czekoladowa dają o sobie znać.
